DDL has been one of my favorites ever. Haven't seen Lincoln yet, but I'll keep him in my top 3 anyways.
Joseph Gordon Levitt has been on a tear lately, posting solid performances in TKDR, Looper and Inception, so I'll put him at 3.
I considered Waltz and JGL myself for my list. I passed on Waltz because he has only been phenomenal in 2 movies that I have seen (and both are QT movies). JGL is probably #4 for me right now. I also gave Bale and Tom Hardy some consideration (ironic that 3 of my honorary mention guys are in DKR which I really disliked). Gosling was another I considered.
